consultants joining us. friend and advisor of president obama. paul, you wrote an article today. you said the president should say all the right things in his speech tomorrow about coming together and about unity and go out and be ruthless. >> yes. that is the lesson of lincoln. in the first inaugural he talked about appealing to the better angels of our nature and then we went to war. he tried. president obama has tried. i think presidents have to change, try to change the culture in which they are placed. in this case, this division that we have in the country isn't going to be healed. it wasn't healed by president clinton. it wasn't healed by president bush. it has not been healed by president obama be . >> you're saying it doesn't matter what he says tomorrow. he should just be ruthless. >> i think he's got to pursue his agenda with way president lincoln did. yes, with relentless commitment. i think the central political miscalculation of his first term is he thought his mere presence would bank those partisan. >> you're going to be saying yada, yada in his head. >> i think the more e

there was a bit of sternness in president obama's speech. he talked about coming together, but he was very forceful. it wasn't a plea to come together, it seemed like a demand to come together. so i did, indeed, think there was some sternness mixed with all that optimism. >> and cokie roberts, the president coming up to this inaugural address today has been something of a confrontational mode since the election. >> and much more willing to say i'm going to do it my way than he was before the election and we certainly did see when he talked about the few doing well and the am not and all that. that's just an echo of the whole campaign speeches and but i do think as donna said, that there was a sense of optimism here that we have not seen from this president, that he has been much more serious and often too pessimistic i think and his speech talking about what we as citizens can do. that whole calling the citizenry into action at the end there, you know, that we can lift and defend our most ancient values & during ideals as citizens and i think it is a call to action that we have not heard f
